On rocks. Where else?

In seriousness: A guiding service will be probably be the fastest route to start. Just don't make the mistake of thinking because you have the knowledge, you'll have the opportunity to use it.

Sometimes climbing isn't so forgiving as that. That's where judgement comes in. Despite what talk about "boldness", onsighting, and peer pressure would have you think, a better climber backs off to live another day. Don't wander into something that has a good chance of getting you hurt if you don't think you can manage the risk.

And make no mistake: Even if you know what you're doing, trad climbing is plenty dangerous. There are no guarantees about that wheelchair.
